Two months ago, Portland (Ore.) Grant forward Mike Moser thought he would be signing with Arizona this week and preparing for his first winters of warm, dry weather next year.
Moser will still have a warm, dry winter next year. However, the Rivals150 prospect will find it in Los Angeles instead of Tucson. Moser announced he signed his National Letter of Intent with UCLA on Wednesday night, according to Rivals.com's Jed Tai.
"I just felt UCLA was the best place for me," Moser said at his press conference.
Moser joins an impressive class for UCLA. The Bruins have Tyler Honeycutt, Reeves Nelson, Brendan Lane and Anthony Stover signed in 2009.
Moser was part of Arizona's 2009 recruiting class but when Lute Olson announced his sudden retirement last month, Moser opened his recruitment back up.
He instantly became one of the hottest targets in the country. However, the Oregon native decided to keep his options on the West Coast. He visited Arizona, Oregon, Oregon State, Southern Cal and UCLA.
